I'm kinda disappointed by Apple support's online chat inquiry service.
my standard apple warranty is about to end this month. tried looking at BTB branches but is out of stock.
now deciding if I should try getting the auto-enroll option in BH Photography. anyone tried this option?
How about other Apple resellers for Apple care before the standard expires?
Anybody here bought their AppleCare from the US and used it on a unit purchased here in the Philippines? I'm worried that they might have some regional restrictions with regards to their codes?
For MacBooks, iMacs, iPads yes. I've done it myself. For iPhones, no.
Thanks sir Leo, I'm planning to avail of B&H's discount and I just got worried by this statement:
My MBP's warranty is expiring soon as well and I need Applecare. Checked a couple of stores, out of stock din sila.
Hi guys, just an update. AppleCare from B&H worked on a locally bought rMBP. So you guys might want to get yours from B&H too. (Not sure if the sale is still ongoing though.)
hi sir, which one did you get, the auto-enroll one or not?
Bought several in the past from Amazon.com. No problems whatsoever.
Not the auto-enroll one. I shipped it to a friend's house in Chicago and had my friend viber me the code.
I didn’t get any applecare for the iphones and ipads the we had.
On the other hand, i bought an applecare for my retina mbp online.
To me applecare was well worth it, the mbp screen had to be replaced twice due to IR and bright pixels.
The IR worsen only after a year and became an issue to me, the bright pixels surfaced after few months.
this is my first time to buy an Applecare for an iMac, where is it best to get one?
Online thru Apple support or thru local dealers like BTB? Thanks in advance
^ I got mine locally. That way, in case something goes wrong during registration, I could easily go back to the store to have them help me sort things out. You don't usually have to be this "segurista" but I'm occasionally paranoid that way.
For local Resellers, try Beyond the Box and iStudio.
I bought mine via B&H when they still had a promo and had it shipped to my friend in Chicago. It worked with my locally purchased unit.
how much does apple care cost?
^ Prices range from 9,000+ to 17,000+, depending on the product you want covered. They can also vary by Reseller. The best way to find out is to call them up or visit their stores.
AppleCare is pretty much like car insurance. You pay for it, you won't necessarily need it, but once you need it, you're glad you have it. Timing is just key. Some folks encounter problems with their Mac while still under AppleCare coverage. Some don't.
I didn't get AppleCare for one of our iMacs, which eventually encountered a graphics card issue almost five years since it was bought. So even if I availed of AppleCare for it, I still wouldn't have been covered.
I got AppleCare for my first-gen 15" Retina MacBook Pro and it's expiring this coming June 22. I haven't needed it so far. So unless something major comes up within the next six days, I essentially gave Apple and Beyond the Box a good chunk of money for something I literally didn't need and use.
But at least I got "peace of mind" the past three years. That's good enough for me.
So if you're thinking of getting AppleCare, don't think of it as an "accessory" even though it's categorized as such in the Apple store website. An accessory is something you're pretty much guaranteed to use like a bag, screen protector, or external drive. AppleCare is an investment -- one that could pay off within three years but if it doesn't, well, at least you got peace of mind.
^now that you've said this, i am considering getting one for the new MB...
will a 2010 iMac be covered by applecare now?
i don't think that can be covered anymore unless you just bought it recently from a reseller
The Applecare must be bought and registered before the one-year complimentary warranty for your unit expires.
